Bottle Cap Art by Molly B. Right

 

” The bottle cap portraits begin with a painted portrait, on a piece of sheet metal. The caps are then glued to the painting, in such a way that they overlap, like the scales of a snake. The bottle caps date from the 30′s to the 70′s and are considered collectable on their own. Particular attention is given to the craftsmanship, so that no traces of glue are visible. Transparent washes of glaze are often used to further define the image. Most of the portraits are 4′ x 5′ and weigh 60-70 pounds.” – Molly B. Right
